"There's an unmet need of kids that are just on waiting lists to get into foster homes in the area," says David Martinkovic, regional director at Northeast Parent and Child Society.
"Providing more opportunity, more placement opportunities for more children, I think that's good for all of us in society. By saving a child, we're going to help make them a successful adult, and that's good for everyone," says Senator James Seward.
Employees at the Northeast Parent and Child Society say the growing need for foster parents increases during back-to-school season.
